Bedard stormed by Rays

O's lefty loses his edge, lead after delay

win streak ends

Devil Rays 8 Orioles 6

June 02, 2006|By JEFF ZREBIEC | JEFF ZREBIEC,SUN REPORTER

Perhaps, it's impossible to quantify what kind of effect the weather delay of 1 hour, 32 minutes last night had on Orioles starter Erik Bedard. He surrendered a long two-run homer two innings before the tarp went on the field and then got two quick outs immediately after it came off.

At that point, both his location and his velocity looked fine. But then the enigmatic left-hander lost his way, giving up three third-inning runs and the lead, as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays avoided a three-game sweep with an 8-6 victory before a crowd of 14,044.
